Prime Meridian Income Fund, a P2P (peer-to-peer) lending fund, released its May 2014 returns marking its 25th consecutive profitable month without a single monthly loss (no drawdowns) for a total return of 21.37% since its inception in May 2012, as compared to a total return of only 4.59% for the Barclay’s US Bond Index over the same time period.
P2P lending allows individuals to request loans by posting them on a P2P lending web site such as Proper and Lending Club. Funding is received directly from individuals or organizations bypassing traditional lending institutions such as banks. The P2P lending industry has shown incredible growth in the past year with Prosper reaching $1 billion in loans issued; a landmark in the less than 10-year existence of the P2P lending market.
“We were an early believer in the potential of P2P lending, and created the Prime Meridian Income Fund as a vehicle for professional investors to participate in this innovative space,” says Don Davis, managing partner of Prime Meridian. “As one of the first P2P lending funds in the United States, we utilized our experience and knowledge to create a P2P lending process and computerized algorithm designed to identify opportunities, assess risk, and capture attractive opportunities quickly.”
The high interest in P2P lending by individual lenders and institutions has created a shortage of P2P loan opportunities compared to the demand. The Prime Meridian Income Fund is one of the first funds able to execute P2P loans using automated technology. Prime Meridian has some great resources to educate investors on P2P lending on its website—P2P Lending blog as well as the white-paper, “P2P Lending for Institutional Investors and Wealth Managers: An Overview,” available for download as a PDF at www.pmifunds.com.
